Tonight I Just Want to Stay In

George speaks:

"I like parties, and a bit of fun like anyone else, but there’s nothing better, for me, than a bit of peace and quiet, sitting round a big fire with your slippers on and watching the telly. That’s the life." (quoted in The Beatles: Off the Record)

I dig it.  The strong desire to just kick back and relax in "peace and quiet" as a way of recharging is very much part of the George Beatleology type.  It stands in contrast to other types: a Paul tends to recharge by engaging in family time or kicking off a new project, a Ringo tends to recharge by socializing and going out, etc.  It was fun for me to find this spelled out, however, straight from "Alpha" George's own mouth.
